I don’t walk through the streets and side streets of the City of London often enough for my liking, particularly with my camera. However, I often enjoy it when I do. Recently, I was walking from London Bridge to Bank tube station.
Monument is a reminder of when London was burning in the Great Fire of London in 1666. Burning from the 2nd to the 5th London, 1666, the fire destroyed quite a lot London. It’s almost hidden away, tucked behind office buildings with its top hinting of its presence.
Wandering the meandering streets of the City, I am reminded of organic nature of how London has grown. Unlike Paris or New York grid-like streets, London streets wander in any which direction they fancy.
Passing a clock hanging from a building, it makes sure I am not loosing myself taking pictures and arrive to my destination on time.
